Spoken (written, in this case) like there's a lot of experience in doing that!

I've done it and it works!

I just ordered mine as well. When I called at 3:30 they had 15 left. With mine that takes it down to 14. Adam also mentioned that they have sold well over 30 of them in the past couple of days.

So if you want one, you had better act fast.

I think prestidigitation would be required to have replacement of a G70Q at almost 200 lbs go unnoticed!

You can get the 5020 for less than $2,000 shipped from Onecall or J&R. That 111 deal is $100 better than I've found elsewhere, though.

That $2500 price blows for the 5020. Abes of Maine has it for $1875 shipped with a free wall mount...
Best,

I just ordered on also at 1:00 PM Central time and they told me that there were 11 left. Somebody can't count. At any rate I would guess there is a good chance they will be gone today or Monday.

Got mine this week from Crown Audio. Box was beaten up pretty well. I haven't opened yet and don't want to be responsible for any damages - issue is I'm installing a whole HT - wiring for speakers, new screen, etc so this will not be set up for a couple weeks. I hate to open it up only to find damages due to shipping. hopefully it's just the box. Anyone else have this potential issue?

I ordered both a projector and a 151FD from Sound Advice in NJ based on the positive experiences on this forum. I must say - these guys are a class act. Mike Beers and Howard Cohen (his installer) are professional and straight forward. I would whole heartedly recommend them. Tell them Adanny from Morristown recommended you and they will give you the forum best price

I liked them so much I ended up buying a Da-lite screen, mounts, Ethereal Balum unit, BD player etc - all from them. have also given them the large-ish contract to install two TVs, a projector, re-wiring, moving a fan to accomodate projector, additonal speakers etc. They will bring all the equipment with them so no risk, they will come with 3 guys and an electrician and get it done.

cant wait

I believe that previously this worked (posted in the other thread - $2600 incl. shipping?):

Main St. Electronics in Anahiem. Ask for Rob or Andrew. 714-835-2133.

Just to let you guys know. I spoke with Andrew at Main st and he claimed that their distributor price on the FPJ1 went up. I paid $2678 shipped, but the next batch he claims will be $200 more. Just a heads up.
